In the course of this religious upheaval, the German Peasants' War of 1524–25 swept through the Bavarian, Thuringian and Swabian principalities. The patricians held their patents of nobility from the emperor, a circumstance of which they were not a little proud, as attesting the descent of their families from very ancient times. By day, whether engaged in business or mingling in the gaieties of the court, the sights and sounds of the massacre would rise unbidden before his imagination; and at night its terrors would return in his dreams.

The Protestant Closed Mind Error: The hardest thing in the world to open is a closed mind. Christian England (Volume 3): From the 18th Century to the First World War. When I say "suitable," I mean that they are not to be unfruitful in almsgiving; for Holy Scripture lays so much stress on this virtue, that our Lord tells us beforehand, that He will ascribe no merit to those on His right hand but that they abound in it, and no defect to those on His left hand but their want of it, when He shall say to the former, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom," and to the latter, "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire."

Also the Orthodox interpretation would be given both to what is now expressed ambiguously and indefinitely�for example, the ideas about the signification of the degrees of the hierarchy, and also to what is expressed with insufficient force�for example, the ideas about the sacramental character of the grace conferred. They’re agents of this evil age, aren’t they? The aged Lefevre found his way, in the first instance, to Strasburg, and ultimately to Nerac. The blindness of the hierarchy in rejecting the very moderate reform which the Protestants asked, the obstinacy of the queen in putting the preachers upon their trial, and the league of the foreign potentates, which threatened to make Scotland a mere dependency of France, all met at this moment, and constituted a crisis of a trimly momentous character, but which above most things helped on that very consummation towards which Scotland had been struggling for upwards of thirty years.
